Pure Magnificence: SPF 30 No Makeup Necessary

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I was fortunate enough to receive La Prairie's Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF 30 ($200) as a gift from La Prairie. I have been hoarding it and saving it for the summer. I have honestly never used a sunscreen that has been so perfect. I have been slathering it on in the morning, popping on mascara, eyeliner, a cream blush and lip gloss, and then running out the door. My skin looks hydrated, luminous and I get SPF 30 protection?! As I have been getting older (think 40+) I have been religious about using tinted moisturizer or foundation to even out...

Recess: Sunscreen Required

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

My 8 year old daughter came home sunburned yesterday from school. Recess combined with the gorgeous May weather we are having is a recipe for disaster! I promptly put Skinceuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 and Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+ by the back door. These are the two sunscreens that my children like and find it easy to put on themselves. From now, until the end of school, our morning routine will include sunscreen application to cheeks, noses, foreheads and bare-arms!

The March to 40

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

I will be turning 40 in May. When I started bluemercury at age 29, I had none of the skin concerns I have now - hyperpigmentation, fine lines around the eyes. Here are the things I really notice between 35 and 40:1. Getting small indentation on chin. Dermatologist said that is from tensing facial muscles and loss of tiny fat deposits. Her solution: Restalyne. My solution: live with it.2. Uneven skin tone. Too many years of California sun on fair skin are starting to show. My solution: glycolic acid peels (either at bluemercury spa or Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha...

Naked Face - New trick

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

If I have serious creative work to do, I often work from my home office after grabbing a coffee at Starbucks. It is these days where I don't see anyone professionally, that I love to wear a naked face. Our Englewood, New Jersey store manager, Deborah, taught me a new naked face trick. After slathering on sunscreen (I wouldn't be without it in the spring - used Darphin Vitalprotection Age-Defying Protective Lotion SPF50 this morning), I take my bronzer, dust my cheeks, and the new trick: my eyelids. It is amazing. It is a little bit of extra color, without...

Palm Beach 2: New Go-To Sunscreen

Posted by Marla Malcolm Beck on

ReVive Skincare sent me the new SPF 45 launching this March. This is my new go to warm weather outdoor sunscreen. I put this on every morning in Palm Beach and zipped out the door to play tennis. Easy application and I felt like I had nothing on. I also loved the firming and hydrating properties. Am addicted.
